Hello all, I'm working on a oil painting of myself as a clown, but something just isn't right....
I've got it sketched on there, and I was happy with it at first, but now it seems like something is waaaay off.
I'm hoping you all can help me out with it and tell me what needs to be changed or fixed.
I had the biggest problems with the face, legs, hands, and feet... Okay, problems with nearly everything.
I am pretty bad at drawing large scale, but I want to get better at it.
Although I'm sure the face is going to turn out different when I actually paint it because that's what usually happens...
Anyways I took some pictures yesterday. My camera was giving me some big problems, so these pictures aren't the best but you can still see it.
Its a big painting, 24"x48".
I have the reference pictures at the bottom.
Now I know these references of myself aren't as clear as they could be... But we tried (my mom and I) and it helps. xD
Oh yeah, and I added the ruffled neck collar.
Also, if you have any tips on oil painting (this isn't my first try or nothing, I'm just always wanting to learn more) or any techniques to share I'd love to see them.
I am a bit worried about the background, I have limited paint supplies so I try to be as conservative as I can be but it just doesn't look like I have enough paint on there...
